Many of the objections center around concern that children might be negatively influenced. One viewer asserts that parents allow kids “as young as 4” to watch it. Sure, The Simpsons is a cartoon about a family, but does that its content and humor is clearly not meant for children. That said, there are cartoons for kids (Courage the Cowardly Dog, anyone?) that have far more disturbing fare than Homer’s naked backside.
In which nudity is NEVER OKAY:
In which the viewer composed a poem?
In which The Simpsons should be sensitive to religious folk:
(I’m offended that this viewer didn’t bother to capitalize “bible”!)
In which teenagers might want to emulate hillbillies:
In which children might want to emulate…a train?
In which “poop” and “pee” are offensive:
(Shame, there’s no way to figure out which episode this was since it was a rerun.)
In which there is no clear complaint:
In which Bart experiences “sexual agony” at the hands of his sister:
(To be fair, quite a few other complaints were about scenes involving kicks to Bart’s groin, which I agree could be disturbing to some extent. However, I don’t think this viewer used quite the right phrase…)
In which Fox should maybe only show Sean Hannity 24/7:
In which Matt Groening the person is inadvertently rude:
(Even the station operator thought this complaint was funny!)
